GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) vs GeForce GTX 1050 3GB

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) comes with a clock frequency of 650 MHz and a GDDR3 memory frequency of 970 MHz. It also makes use of a 256-bit memory bus, and uses a 65 nm design. It is comprised of 128 SPUs, 64 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all of that to the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB, which comes with GPU clock speed of 1392 MHz, and 3072 MB of GDDR5 memory running at 1750 MHz through a 96-bit bus. It also features 768 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 24 ROPs.

GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) 62080 MB/sec
Difference: 23936 (39%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB is quite a bit (about 61%) more effective at AF than the GeForce 8800 GTS (G92). (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 66816 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) 41600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 25216 (61%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 33408 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) 10400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 23008 (221%)

Please note that the above 'benchmarks' are all just theoretical - the results were calculated based on the card's specifications, and real-world performance may (and probably will) vary at least a bit.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card can possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
